Hollywood Actor and Comedian Is Charged with Sexual Battery

Andy Dick, who was fired from a movie set last year for inappropriate behavior, allegedly has committed more troublesome acts

Actor Andy Dick reportedly has been charged with sexual battery.

The “In the Army Now” star is accused of groping a woman and making lewd comments to her in April on the streets of Los Angeles, TMZ reported on Sunday.

Dick is being charged with misdemeanor sexual battery and misdemeanor simple battery, the outlet noted, for allegedly touching the woman. It said it reached out to the star for comment but received no reply. Fox News also reported the story and said it had reached out for comment as well.

The actor was fired from a movie last October due to multiple reports he allegedly propositioned people on set and groped them.

“I don’t grope people anymore. I don’t expose myself anymore,” Dick said to The Hollywood Reporter at the time. “I do understand that the temperature in the world right now is delicate.”

He also said, “I didn’t grope anybody. I might have kissed somebody on the cheek to say goodbye and then licked them. That’s my thing — I licked Carrie Fisher at a roast. It’s me being funny. I’m not trying to sexually harass people.”

Andy Dick has previous arrests on his record for exposing himself and groping a bartender.

His wife, Lina Sved, said in court papers in recent months that the actor and comedian has been heavily drinking and lashing out at family members.

Sved filed a restraining order against her husband at the time.

Recent notable projects for Dick include guest spots on the Netflix shows “Sense8” and “Love.”
